Examples of symbolic compositions

Using my speculations from the previous post, I’ll decode a couple of symbols.

The peace symbol is a tree (cross) within a circle, which translates to “universal tribe” or “one people”, i.e. globalism.

This sentiment is expressed in the ending of Jet Li’s Hero, which apparently nobody liked except me:

Here’s another one from Doompony:

Click for the larger version. The sentiment here is a tree within a pyramid, or “tribe within hierarchy/civilization”. Another from Doompony:

Tree within spiral = “tribal ascension”. Jagged lines suggest ascension via destruction, i.e. creative destruction.

    The symbol seen here is actually [or was originally] the Eolx, or Elk-sedge rune. A very old, archaic letter that in the germanic languages was used to write X or Z [depending on which language with older examples almost always being Z].
    The anglo-saxon poem explaining the full meaning of this character:
    “The Elk-sedge usually lives in the fen,
    growing in the water. It wounds severely,
    staining with blood any man
    who makes a grab at it.”
    When turned upside down, the rune becomes the arrow [ar] rune, which was used in Scandinavia during the last centuries of European paganism to write J/Y in Old Norse. When runes were still being used in places like England, this reversed rune was known as the Calc [Chalice] rune which may have been used to write the “ch” phoneme.

      Maybe in a particular culture “red” means “happy”, but for the most part it refers to emotions that get the blood up: love, rage, etc. Color psychology is more or less general, and by analogy these symbols are supposedly general too.

    I figure a lot of this stuff is used for intra-melon communication, because it flies right over our heads 99.9% of the time.
